mhadjar: Dedicated servers, in my opinion, are not so much for websites with high traffic or using up lots of bandwidth, but rather for sites which require lots of customization at the root level or which require a large amount of a servers CPU usage.
At any rate, I go through 25GB of transfer per month many times over, but I have no need for a dedicated server.
Lensman: Thanks, that’s reassuring. The status page is handy too.
nathan823: Yes, it’s always a bit of a crapshoot on any shared hosting as to whether you get good neighbors or not. Good to hear they move you without too much grief.
